The marching band is the largest and most active performing group at Fort Mill High School. There are approximately 200+ members in the marching band including wind instruments, marching percussion, non-marching percussion, and color guard.
The Marching Band performs at all home football games, in parades, and at competitions during the months of September and October. A great deal of time and effort goes into the competition show each year with rewards and memories that will last a lifetime.
